The femme fatale dumps the boy when she discovers he has no money, but by then Phyllis realizes she is in love with Richard, not his foolish ward. Written by
I have seen a lot of Myrna Loy films (I can watch her in anything except musicals), and this is without question her worst. What is frightening is she was the only one who was even decent. David Manners was the worst in this film, I can't describe how bad he acted. I usually like Loretta Young. Her eyes are stunning (Perhaps the best pair of eyes in Hollywood history. They were essentially hidden in this film, And I don't know why but she struck me as flat chested as well. I am not saying she was Sophia Loren, but she out did Harlow in "The Platinum Blonde" in the looks (And acting dept) here she simply plain. I will give it 2 stars out of 10. One for Myrna and one for the shock ending, which I won't give away. I will say this, it improves the film, but does not save it.
